  Despite what happened to the brand in the past few years, Fiat still has a special place in my heart. I remember very well the moment I saw my first Fiat in Canada because it was my girlfriend Fiat at the moment. She was lucky enough to put her hand on one of the first Fiat 500 delivered in the country. It was one of the Prima Edizione. This car had a unique vibe to it. It felt almost like it was an exotic or supercar. Of course, I\'m not ...
I\'ll be frank with you; if you\'ve told me that Tesla was going to deliver one million vehicles in 12 months a couple of years ago, I would\'ve thought you\'d be crazy. However, that\'s precisely what happened for 2021 cents the American manufacturer nearly delivered one million vehicles. It\'s a significant number even for a company the size of Tesla, and it proves that when you are ready to invest time and lots of money, anything is possible. I\'m ...
The least we can say is that we are very far from the era when a truck was just a truck. Today, your average truck can be an office, and it can be a family vehicle, a perfect off-roader ready for any adventure, and indeed a tool. What I mean by that it\'s not that it can replace an excellent old drill or a hammer, but a truck like the F-150 could be helpful in all sorts of situations. It can be used to stuff or to carry heavy stuff as well. You can ...
  Following Audi, Volkswagen, and many others, Hyundai recently announced that they would no longer work on the development of new combustion engines. This decision might seem radical, but the Korean manufacturer is a fear believer in an all-electric future for the automobile industry. Well, this is one way to do things because there are many rumors surrounding Hyundai about hydrogen fuel cell cars. We know that the Korean manufacturer recently ...
  To be honest with you, the 1980s isn\'t considered one of the most prestigious eras for the automobile industry. At least not for the American market. Most cars coming out of American factories at this time were eater ugly, underpowered, or simply both. Of course, there are some exceptions, such as the Buick Grand National, thanks to the fast and furious franchise, which helped the Car become as iconic as it is today.    A fun ...
  If Subaru is well known for its victory in World Rally Championship, the Japanese manufacturer, it\'s also very good at making the vehicle for the average Joe. The Crosstrek has proven to be one of the best little SUVs out there. It is bigger than most of its rivals, its all-wheel drive system is simply better in every possible way, and this is a very good-looking vehicle. Also, it is pretty fuel-efficient, and I\'m not even talking about ...
  Rivian is a fairly new American manufacturer that is specialized in the making of electric vehicles. But instead of focusing on sedans and luxury vehicles as Tesla does, Rivian decided to target a totally different market by making practical, affordable, and futuristic-looking vehicles. The first vehicle presented by the new American manufacturer is the R1T which is a pickup truck that can be equipped with a kitchen if you\'d like to. This ...
  I won\'t lie to you. This is a sad story, especially if you\'re a Chevrolet Corvette fan. House you might know, Kansas was recently hit by one of the most significant tornados ever recorded in the state, and the tornado did a lot of damage. I\'m not even talking about all the people with our injured and even killed by it. However, many news channels have already covered this. Since this is a car news website, let\'s talk about what happened ...
What is the latest meanest maddest Ford Mustang how there lately? Most people would say the Shelby GT500, and they are not wrong. However, Shelby factories came with something even better itself, which is the Shelby GT500 KR. in case you are wondering, KR stands for the king of the road, and that is why they went all the way with this new alteration of the American muscle car. And just in case you are a bit confused here, the GT500 KR is not offered ...
While Fiat is a very popular brand in Europe and other countries in the world, things haven\'t gone according to the plant in North America. Today the only model left in Fiat North American lineup is the 500X. The regular 500, the 500L, and even the 124 spiders are all gone. This happened mainly because Fiat is producing small vehicles, and the small vehicle isn\'t that popular in North America. There\'s some market like the province of Quebec in ...
When you think of Tesla, the last thing that comes in your mind is a big juicy American V8 and certainly the idea of putting one in two it Model S. Nevertheless, that\'s exactly what the YouTuber Rich Benoît did, and we\'re glad he did it. Probably the last thing that Elon Musk wanted to hear, I have to admit the sound of the V8 combined two the elegant design of a Tesla is satisfying. It\'s like it was meant to go together, and there\'s no ...
I think we can all agree on the fact that 2021 hasn\'t been an easy year. Of course, 2020 was a nightmare since it was the year that the whole COVID-19 situation all started out. However, I feel like 2021 was even worse since we started to feel the repercussion of 2020. The automobile industry has been significantly affected by the chip shortage, sick workers, and even more. This led us to a lower than ever before inventory for most manufacturers. ...
Today is a very sad day, especially if you\'re an Audi fan. That\'s right, and if you read the title, you already know the Audi TTRS is leaving North America after 2022. Not only is the TTRS a fun little car to drive, but it\'s also a huge part of the German manufacturer\'s history.    However, there\'s still a chance for you to own this top trim of the Audi TT for the 2022 model, which is going to be available in a special heritage edition. ...
The automobile industry is changing. Some say it\'s for the best, and others think it\'s just not right. As much as I\'d like to tell you that good stories never end, I think this one was even too short to be called a story. If you\'ve read the title, you know we\'re talking about the Dodge Durango Hellcat. It\'s pointless to say that I was very excited when the American manufacturer first announced that they were going to put the Hellcat engine in ...
If you know me, you know I love rumors, and there\'s one that might be interesting for you as well, especially if you are a General Motors enthusiast per se. However, the first thing you should know is we\'re not talking about the brand new 5.5 liters naturally aspirated V8 which you find in the brand-new Corvette ZO6. This engine has been said to be exclusive to the Corvette would its flat crankshaft setup, which gives it a unique sound. The engine ...
It\'s not a coincidence if these three Japanese manufacturers are mentioned together in this title. Toyota and Subaru worked on many projects together, such as the GR86 and the BRZ, but their latest common project is the bZ4X and the Solterra, which are two electric vehicles interestingly. Mazda and Toyota also worked together on some projects, so it makes total sense that they go in the same direction. Unlike most manufacturers, Subaru, Mazda, and ...
Before anything, I think it\'s important to talk about the historical part of the Hummer and the Humvee because these are two completely different vehicles. In fact, they\'re not even made by the same brand, and that\'s where people get confused. The M998 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, also known as the Humvee, was first introduced on the market in 1985. Well, when I say on the market, I don\'t mean or regular customer but for military ...
If you live in North America, you might think of Ford as a company who sells SUVs and trucks mostly. A couple of years ago, the American manufacturers mentionned it wanted to remove all the cars from its lineup except for the Mustang, obviously. It was a good decision for some cars, but for others like the Fusion, it was a totally different story. In fact, this model was so popular that it took almost two years for Ford to get rid of it. However, ...
So far, we can say that COVID hit the automobile industry pretty hard, and it\'s not over yet. You see, the disease forced many governments to give people financial help, which led us two another problem. Now that people received more money than what they would make by working by staying home, nobody wanted to go back to work at the minimum wage. Many businesses have a problem hiring comes up, and I\'m not even talking about people suffering long-term ...
It’s no secret that pickup trucks are getting more popular every day and General Motors is one of the biggest players in this game. However, Ford recently introduced the Maverick on the market, a truck that is so cheap and efficient that dealers are saying the model is selling like hot dogs, literally. The smallest truck GM is currently offering is the Canyon/Colorado duo, and these two are, in fact, a lot bigger than the Maverick. They are ...
Porsche is all about heritage, passion, and legacy. However, if you can afford to buy a brand new one, you might have some trouble choosing which version suit you the best. If you have just enough to buy the base version or an infinite budget and you got the top version with all boxes checked, you’ll save yourself a massive headache. I mean, I don’t want to scare you, but there are 21 versions you can choose from, and I’m not even ...
Even if the new 2023 Corvette Z06 was revealed a couple of days ago, it\'s already a victim of its popularity. In fact, it is so popular that many chevy\'s dealers said they already sold their entire coming unit up until the end of the production of the C8 (current generation) Corvette, which is settled for 2025 or 2026 in the best-case scenario. Although we know it\'s going to be under $100 000 USD, the official price hasn\'t been released yet for ...
Be close to your friends but be even closer to your enemies. That's what they say, right? It seems to be exactly what Tesla is going to do since Elon Muck recently announced its company Head Quarter will move to Texas. And just in case you didn't get it, Texas is one of the largest oil producers in the world. So putting HQ and a Gigafactory of an EV company is funny. However, even if this makes a lot of sense, that is not why Elon Musk chose this ...
While we are still waiting for Acura to reveal the whole new Integra to North American Market, the Japanese Manufacturer has already unveiled the Integra for Japan. Well, to be fair, it looks just like the Civic SI we’re going to get here with a different bumper and different headlights, but don’t get fooled because it is way more than that.    The first question you may ask yourself is why the new Integra would be released ...
A Sequoia tree can live for several hundred years, and it’s one of the largest trees in the world if it isn’t the largest. Interestingly, I feel like it’s been at least a century since the last time the Sequoia got updated, even if it was 2008. Well, 2008 was a long time ago in the automobile industry. In 2008, many cars still had a cassette player, manual windows, and not so powerful V-8’s, and I will let you imagine the rest. ...
When it comes to luxury and prestige in the car industry, Rolls-Royce certainly is the first brand that comes to our mind with reasons. The British manufacturer redefined the way we see comfort, quality, and the whole experience of transportation. Some say Rolls Royce is the equivalent of a yacht on the road, and I couldn\'t agree more. The average RR is powered by a 6.75 liters V-12 that produces more than 500 hp, which sounds a lot like what you ...
  Modern vehicles are safer than ever thanks to high-tech passive and active safety features. However, rare is the occasion where you can push this system to its limit, and frankly, it wouldn’t be recommended to do so. Thankfully, there’s plenty of companies out there specialized in those tortures tests to learn where are those breaking point and to confirm if those new technologies are working properly, so you don’t have to ...
  If you don’t know, electric vehicles have been around for quite some time now, and I’m not talking about the Nissan Leaf that was first introduced in 2010 or the Even General Motors project in the 90s. At the end of the 1800s, there was more electric car on the road than anything else ‘‘steam or gas car’’. The only problem back then was that it was really difficult to control the power of electricity in ...
Chevrolet recently announced 2024 would be the last year of production for the current Camaro generation. What is yet to be confirmed is if the Camaro will just end there or a new generation will be introduced after that nevertheless, if this is the end for the Camaro its going to be a very spectacular one since the American manufacturer is going to launch a special edition for its final year of production.    With all the special editions ...
  Lamborghini announced the Aventador would be the last of the naturally aspirated V12 era, which is definitely sad news. Despite the fact the Italian supercar was launched ten years ago, it is still doing well thanks to many updates throughout the years, but Lamborghini recently announced the end is approaching for the Aventador. Since then, they came up with many special editions like the Sian, the Centenario, and the Countach, which are all ...

After years of development and being delayed by the whole Covid-19 situation, the new Ford Bronco is finally out, and we couldn’t ask for more or could we? In fact, since the very beginning, rumours about a Raptor version of the new Bronco have been out and for once, it is true. For the record, I don’t think Ford really planned to unveil the new Bronco Raptor as fast as it happened but the American manufacturer had no choice since information ...
Have you ever wondered how much a brand-new armored vehicle can cost? Well, the answer is $3.6 million, which is more expensive than most Hypercars currently available on the market. We understand that safety is a priority when it comes to the U.S. government, but why is this chevy Suburban so expensive, and why do they need 10 of those. Anyways the deal settled for $36.4 million.    Right out of the showroom, a regular Chevrolet Suburban ...
Here’s a piece of excellent news coming from Ford since the American manufacturer started the production for the very awaited F-150 Lightning. If you have no idea about what this is, the new Lightning is not a modern version of the hero truck you saw in the first Fast and Furious, but it is, in fact, an all-electric version of the current F-150. If this sounds interesting, it’s because it is, and that’s basically why Ford decided ...
  The mighty GT-R has been out for quite some time now without any significant improvement since its debut in 2007. However, Nissan’s engineers gave it everything right at the beginning, which made the GT-R one of the fastest cars out there back then. Today, even if the Japanese sports car is still a match for most supercars, it’s just not as impressive as it used to be. The only reason explaining why it’s still there is its ...
When you think about Police vehicles, the first thing that some in your mind is probably the Dodge Charger, The Ford Taurus, or the mighty Crown Victoria. However, some police departments have a wider variety in their fleet, sometimes including pretty unusual and even some exotic vehicles. If you\'ve ever been to the United States, there\'s a good chance you saw a Corvette or a Mustang as Police Car. In Italy, don\'t expect to get away even if you ...
  If you’ve never heard of it, what we are referring to as ghost vehicles are the ones without automatic operating lights. I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but several accidents have been caused by this lack of this feature, believe it or not. This problem has been the federal government\'s target for a long time now, but the wait is finally over since there is a new law effusive now that force manufacturer to install one ...
There are a lot of new things coming in for the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado. The American truck will get an updated version of the Super Cruise first introduced in the Cadillac CT6. Chevrolet also said they improved the 2.7 liters 4 cylinder, which produces more power. However, the biggest news is the introduction of the ZR2 version. As you probably saw with the Colorado, the ZR2 package is off-road oriented and comes with many goodies. Finally, the ...
Ten years ago, if you wanted a big luxury SU, you had to go with Americans, and your choice was pretty much limited to the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator. Of course, German and Japanese had some options too, but they weren\'t quite as good or as big as American SUVs were back then. However, Things have changed since. Bigger and better SUVs have started to appear everywhere. Audi introduced the Q8 and Lamborghini the Urus. Mercedes-Benz ...
Porsche\'s success is based on tradition and racing history with cars like the legendary 917, who won 24 Hours of Le Mans several times. In fact, up to this date, Porsche is still the most victorious manufacturer on the South Circuit. All that to say, Porsche is no joke when it comes to motorsport, and the German manufacturer is going one step further with the EV Mission R Concept.    Racing’s car has brought many supercars and even ...
  With his 702 hp supercharged 6.2 L V8, beefed-up suspension, and muscular, the least we can say is that the 2021 RAM 1500 TRX made quite a first impression on the market. However, the thing will be even better for 2022 since the American manufacturer added few upgrades to it, including a new flashy color and a new themed version. It is called Ignition Edition and will be offered in exclusive orange paint and many other things like new rims ...
I have to admit, the 90s gave us some of the coolest trucks ever, including the Splash Edition Ford Ranger. Luckily for us, the American manufacturer didn’t forget how awesome it was, and this is why he decided to offer a new Splash Edition with the 2022 Ford Ranger. The best thing about it is it will come in two stages. First, there is a Splash package which adds some cosmetic goodies to your regular Ranger. However, if you still wear a one-piece ...
Usually, we see a car as a whole thing, and we forget that every component must be designed individually. General Motors reminds us of that since his most recent creation is a steering wheel. I know it doesn’t sound that exciting at first but trust me, it is way more interesting than you can believe it and here’s why.    Even if it’s just a concept, for now, this steering wheel could represent the future of the automobile ...
For some people going off-road means just leaving the pavement, but for others, we are talking about serious stuff like rock crawling or desert sand which is too of the most challenging things for most vehicles. However, if there’s one thing most cars can’t do, it is crossing a river. Besides offering unique electric vehicles, Rivian is looking to give people the opportunity to get some of the bests off-roading on the market. You can order ...
  What does the Lamborghini Aventador, The Ferrari SF90, the Porsche 911 Turbo S have in common? They’re all very fast cars with new technologies. What if I tell you a 1993 supercar with a BMW engine is even faster? Or course, I’m talking about the McLaren F1. This car is legendary, and even if only 106 units have ever been made, it is one of the most well-known cars in the world still today. Why did you ask? Well, it has been the ...

White, Black, Silver, and Gray are among the most popular colors in the car industry, and this is because there’s a reason for that. Most brands offer these 4 primary colors for their entire lineup, but when I add other tints, we are far from a rainbow. Usually, you can choose between a dark Blue and a Red, and some manufacturers are a bit more creative with oranges, green, or yellow. These colors are often offered on sportier models, and they ...
